The family in 1861

www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M7FX-RQR

The family in 1871
RG10/1841/F32/p20
Church Street, Attleborough, Wayland

William Clowes 38 Chemist
Charlotte Clowes wife 37
Mary Clowes dau 9
Florence Clowes dau 8
William Clowes son 6
Albert Clowes son 4
Ethel Clowes dau 2
Hester Clowes dau 11 mths

I'm not sure why they called another son William as the William Cubitt Clowes born 1859 is still alive.
He is a boarder with a Benjamin Rowe, schoolmaster in St Giles, Norwich, presumably at a private school. Ref is RG10/1816/F66/p24

In 1881 William, Charlotte and family are still in Attleborough but I cannot find William born 1859 at all.
